There is a lot of information available about bisphosphonates such as Boniva and Fosamax. Advertisements promote these drugs as easy treatments for osteoporosis and these drugs are commonly prescribed by doctors. However, the FDA has also issued warnings about the drugs and stories of potential complications and lawsuits have been reported in the news.
These sources of information can be confusing for patients who often have questions about bisphosphonates injury or lawsuit or risk, such as:
- What are Fosamax Risks? The FDA has warned that Fosamax has been linked to an increased risk of atypical femur fractures and osteonecrosis of the jaw.
- Are There Lawsuits Against Fosamax? Yes, there are currently lawsuits pending against Merck, the manufacturer of Fosamax.
- What is the Truth About Fosamax Safety? The truth is that the FDA has identified potential risks associated with Fosamax.
Before you take Fosamax, as before you take any prescription drug, it is important to talk to your doctor about the potential side effects, the potential warning signs of the side effects, whether the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks for you, and whether any safer alternatives exist to treat your condition.
